Coronavirus Update

Regent Park CHC is doing our part to help prevent the spread of 2019 novel coronavirus/COVID-19.   Following the recommendations from the Ministries of Health and Toronto Public Health, we have implemented the following changes to our services:  

1. If you have a cough, breathing problems and/or a fever, and have recently travelled outside of Canada, please stay home and call your primary care provider for guidance.   If you see a doctor or nurse practitioner at Regent Park CHC, call us at (416) 203-4505.

Appointments for any service may be rebooked until after 14 days from your return to Canada.

2. Clients will now be screened before any in-person appointment or group program.  You will be asked if you have a cough, breathing problems and/or a fever, and have recently travelled outside of Canada.  You may be asked to rebook your appointment or not attend the program if you are unwell.

Good hygiene tips: your best defence against getting sick

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are ill.
  • Stay home when you are ill.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then immediately throw the tissue in the garbage and wash your hands.
  • If you don’t have a tissue, sneeze or cough into your sleeve or arm.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Welcome to the Regent Park Community Health Centre (RPCHC) website. We’re delighted you are interested in the work we are doing in Regent Park and area. RPCHC works with the people who live and work in the area to improve the health and wellbeing of the people who live here and the community as a whole. We offer a wide range of services and programs – some of them accessible by everybody, some of them more focused, some of them about specific health issues, some of them about building on people’s capacity to take action on common issues impacting health…but all of them about building the health of this dynamic community. Come and see how we can work together…!

Overdose Prevention Service

Regent Park Community Health Centre is applying to the Provincial Government to establish a Consumption & Treatment Service (CTS) to replace our Overdose Prevention Service (OPS). If you require more information or have feedback, please contact Michele Heath, Director of Community Health at 416-203-4506 X2298.

Announcement of Capital Funding Award

We are very excited to announce that RPCHC has recently been awarded $205,450 in one-time capital funding from the Community Infrastructure Renewal Fund (CIRF) through the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.   This funding is very timely as the Health Centre, which was built in 1998, is now 19 years old and is in need of repair and replacement in a number of areas.   This award is to replace the roof membrane, flashing and replace the wall system on our deck area.   It will prevent further leaking that has occurred.  These funds will also allow us to install additional automatic door openers and controls in our common area washrooms and program spaces.  It addresses our ongoing commitment to ensuring our facilities are fully accessible and safe for our clients, staff and visitors.  

Our sincere thanks to the Toronto Central LHIN and the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care for their ongoing support to our programs and services.
